Hi everyone. A few days ago I painted a canvas with acrylic paints following this video I saw about palette knife painting. For my first try, I was happy with the results. It doesn't have the texture of the one shown in the video, but I do love the colours and how it turned out. Red and gold are the accent colours in my house, so I could hang it in just about any room.
Next I tried the same colours on a smaller canvas using a paint brush to paint on the same colours following this video. It turned out great, but is much flatter than the canvas above. I think it needs something more, but will leave it for now.
I still have to seal the canvases before they are completely finished, painting over top with some diluted soft gloss gel. It will seal the canvas to protect it and will also give it shine and deepen the colours. Just need to get to the store to buy the gel. :)
Both canvases were done using Liquitex Basics (medium body acrylics), in Cadium Red, Alizarin Crimson, Raw Sienna, White, and Gold.
Yesterday I had a play day with my friends Susan and Christine. We spent the afternoon painting more canvases using three different techniques. The paint was flying :) ... it was messy and a lot of fun! I will share my canvases from yesterday in the next couple of days after they've had time to dry thoroughly.
Thanks for stopping by!
